Antonio Brown And His Trainer Involved In Alleged Battery Incident
Just when you thought things couldn’t get worse for Antonio Brown, you were wrong. The seven-time All-Pro receiver was allegedly involved in a battery incident that occurred at his home Tuesday, according to Hollywood, Florida Police.
Law enforcement officials responded to an emergency call from a driver of a moving truck company that claimed to be transporting items to Brown’s Florida residence, according to public information officer Christian Lata. Brown’s trainer, Glen Holt, was arrested and charged with “burglary with batter” for allegedly assaulting the driver, according to ESPN’s Cameron Wolfe. Holt was arraigned at Broward County Jail on Tuesday.
Brown is considered a suspect in the case, but has been unreachable for comment. Police have tried to contact him but Brown has “locked himself in his house,” according to Lata. Wolfe also spoke to neighbors who said they “have been fed up with the antics coming from the home, including multiple police encounters this month.” Police also said the investigation is ongoing, but more information should become available Wednesday.
Last week the police came to Brown’s home after he called them asking to escort the mother of his children Chelsie Kyriss off the property. Brown documented the incident on Instagram live and was seen cursing profusely at police while his children were present.
His agent Drew Rosenhaus temporarily cut ties with the former Steeler follwing his erratic behavior. On January 16, ESPN’s Adam Schefter tweeted, “Agent Drew Rosenhaus conditionally terminated his relationship with Antonio Brown today until the free-agent WR seeks counsel, per an NFLPA source. Rosenhaus wrote in the letter that the NFLPA received today that he would like to work with Brown, but not until he first gets help.”
Brown is currently under investigation by the NFL stemming from two allegations of sexual assault and misconduct last year and the league “has begun its own investigation in an attempt to procure details” about this incident, according to Wolfe.
